    Winemaker's Notes:

    Generous black cherry, boysenberry and blackberry are finely balanced by savory qualities and tangy acidity. Full-bodied, opulent and well- structured, this complex Pinot will command your attention!

    Critical Acclaim:

    Super nose of leather, chili, shiitake mushroom, and berries. Full-bodied, with wonderfully focused tannins and a spices. So refined and pretty. Gorgeous. Drink or hold.

    James Suckling

    Despite being located within splashing distance of the Pacific, the vineyards at Fort Ross sit high enough up in the coastal hills that they are able to give off wines that are both ripe and balanced. Here, the black cherry nature of the fruit is filled out by invitingly spicy nuances and hints of dried flowers. Oak plays its expected supportive role, and were it not for a bit of latter palate reluctance, this one might have reached even higher commendation. Withal, it is well worth a second glance.
